mr. morsi rescinds his controversial decrees. those are the peaceful protesters, and the arteries leading m tahrir. we've had some clashes. they seem to be teenagers, young men. it's hard to say if they're out here fighting for democracy or they're out here looking for trouble. in the meantime, opposing factions to mr. morsi are mobilizing to add pressure on him. on saturday a judge's group calling for an all-out judges strike, and also a one million man protest against mr. morsi on tuesday, dana. >> thank you very much. >>> as the truth holds -- the truce holds, rather, between hamas and israel for the fourth day, palestinian president mahmoud abbas says he is confident ahead of a bid thursday at the united nations seeking status as a non-member observer state. now, all of the palestinian factions, hamas and fatah, are supporting the effort. the u.s. and israel oppose the bid arguing it would complicate my further peace negotiations. >>> lottery officials say nobody has won the powerball jackpot yet. it's pushed the prize up to $425 million. that's the largest jackpot ever for th
